Back to the Future... of 5th Edition!

A casual player like myself cannot keep up the pace like GW has pumped out so many new books and editions lately. And to be honest, I do not want to spend 45€ for each army every three years for the codices alone!

At first, I thought about playing 2nd edition 40k, but some of the newer factions were not present at the time as they were later on. The unit choices/datafaxes were pretty limited, too.
Sure, the 5th edition isn`t perfect, but it is a concluded system and will always stay this way. The rules will not change any further! We`ll see how it will work out.

I look forward to playing my next games and painting some miniatures! In fact I`v already played two small games (40k in 40 minutes) with my son using the 5th edition ruleset... I'm hyped!

Tabletop Flea Market in Cologne

Last Sunday, I went to my first tabletop flea market ever. It was held in a store called "TopTables" in Cologne. Albeit its limited size, I landed some good deals and had inspiring hobby conversations. There was so much good old stuff everyone wanted to get rid off, which made me somehow sad at the same time. 


That made me think about the good old days. I had so much fun with the 5th edition of 40k and played it by for the most. Therefore, I want to give it another go with my son. I could not bring myself to introduce him to the current rules. Everything still feels so complicated and bloated, even though it has become better since the 9th edition. Right now, I am getting back to studying the old rulebook and codices and will report more later on.

[Adeptus Titanicus] 2nd Slaanesh Reaver Battle Titan

Here comes my second Slaanesh Reaver Battle Titan. It is armed with a Chainfist, a Powerfist in the form of a demonic claw and an Apocalypse Missile Launcher. 

After I have looked a little more into the special rules of the Legios, I've decided to play my Slaanesh titans as Legio Vulpa. This Legion is just too good when it comes to melee combat. In terms of the colour scheme, they don't differ all that much.
